History

KXLY and KHQ received FCC permit to construct facilities for their channels on July 11, 1952. KXLY went on air after the launch of KHQ on Jan 16, 1953 with test transmission; the channel was formally launched on Feb 22, 1953. It initially planned to take to air by Christmas of 1952 but couldn’t sign on due to adverse weather conditions. Ed Craney was the owner of the oldest radio service KXLY 920 AM and its TV sibling. Just a few months after the launch, KXLY-AM was sold by Craney to Northern Radio and Television Corporation. It was a primary CBS affiliate as its sister was already linked with CBS Radio and shared ABC affiliation with KHQ. Some of the programming broadcasted by the channel came from DuMont until it became silent in 1955. When KREM went on air in 1954 it became it dropped the ABC affiliation to become a sole CBS affiliate in the market. Initially having a good partnership with CBS, the relationship of the channel with the network became weak later when it started to air programming out of pattern. On Aug 8, 1976 it ended its 23-year relationship with CBS as CBS content moved to KREM. Consequently, it swapped ABC affiliation with KREM in Feb 1976. It is the only channel in Spokane to broadcast from Mount Spokane. It added MeTV content on its digital sub-channel KXLY-DT2 on Sep 3, 2012 however, it stopped airing MyNetworkTV on Oct 1, 2012.
